Hello!
after vacation back again :-)


cooling is getting better, but still not perfect. The 230 with silencer needs a bit more attention than the 150 does.

also the gear support on the right wing is new after i rolled out of the field it the corn

so, cockpit is in and some other stuff also. the weight is now 22 kilos with Gas.
